PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There’s more good news for the Penguins tonight as they prepare to take on the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

In addition to Sidney Crosby’s return to the lineup, the Penguins say defenseman Kris Letang will also will return to game action after missing five games with concussion-like symptoms.

Letang has been out since suffering a hit to his chin Nov. 29 at Dallas. The hit caused symptoms to resurface from a concussion he suffered Nov. 26 at Montreal.

Letang’s concussion in November forced him to miss 21 games.

Crosby’s return was announced earlier this week.

The Penguins’ captain returned from a concussion in November. He played eight games before being sidelined with concussion-like symptoms.
